Women of all ages are personally invited to become involved in the Women’s Ministry of Lexington Baptist. We desire to see each woman have a close, intimate, and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We are joining hearts and hands together to encourage, disciple and equip women.
Women’s Ministry Fall Kick-Off
Sunday, September 20, 2015 at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall
The kids are back in school, fall sports and activities have started. It is the season of tailgating! We want to invite all of our ladies to our annual Women’s Ministry Kick-Off Event on Sunday, September 20, at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Bring your favorite tailgating food, and we will provide the drinks! Let’s gather around the tables as Daughters Of The King to worship, to fellowship, to be encouraged and to be challenged. This will be an opportunity for you to sign up for small groups, to lead a small group or to be a one-on-one mentor for a younger woman.
This year, we have the privilege of hearing from one of our own who is passionate about the status of women around the world. Emily Yount grew up at LBC. The Lord called her family to full-time missions when she was a teenager, and through her life experiences in a foreign country, the Lord begin to speak to Emily about women’s issues. Upon her graduation from Vanderbilt University, Emily received a fellowship to continue her education, resulting in the opportunity for travel around the globe where she met with officials in various countries to learn more about the status of women.
On September 20, Emily will share with us what God has revealed to her heart about His concern for women around the world. We will also hear an update on the progress being made to open the first safe house in South Carolina for young ladies 17 and under. Did you know that until this last legislative session, we were listed with a few other states as having the weakest laws in the nation on human trafficking? Did you know that we are a main thoroughfare for transporting children/women because of our major interstates? Did you know that Homeland Security held a sting operation in West Columbia, and that when they raided the pimp house, they found all of the five phone lines were ringing with incoming calls from Lexington to make “appointments?” We cannot close our eyes any longer to the evils of human/sex trafficking right here around us. We will learn what we can do and how we can support those who have been robbed of their childhood by the evils existing in our communities and our state.
Mark your calendars for an evening designed for women, about women and God’s heart for women! It will be an evening to remember! See you on September 20 at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall!
Join a Women’s Small Group this year! Women’s small groups are unique and different than traditional bible study groups. In a day in age where it is almost impossible to foster deep, transparent, prayer-filled relationships, these groups are meant to encourage those types of relationships that God created us as women to desire. Rather than meeting together for a set amount of time to go through a short-term study, these ongoing “closed” groups are facilitated by their mentor to grow spiritually, talk about their struggles, pray for one another, and encourage each other to grow deeper in their individual relationships with Christ. Take advantage of this refreshing opportunity to have organic and honest relationships with other like-minded Christians and to rejoice together in the many ways we can see the Lord at work daily if only our eyes are open.
